When a Sony TV flashes five times, that means that there is an AKB circuit fault.
This means that there is something wrong with the video.
Try first unplugging power for few hours, if that does not work, call a technician, as several IC and components must be tested and eventually replaced.

I have a 42" Sony Plasma Model# PFM-42B1 was watching tv when picture went out. Red standby light keeps flashing. Was told to unplug for 5 hours then plug back in & count how many times it blinks,...


Hi,

There are a number reasons why this might happen:
  • The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  • The panel has died - Need a new panel
  • A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  • The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  • The driver board is faulty
Thanks

Your best bet, if you have ther board out yourself is PTS Electronics. Techs even feed these guys because they're well known for their quality of work and reasonable price. If you're looking to have a shop there bring the whole set in and work on it maybe this will help.
